Peter Sandhofe’s Antiphonary

Peter Sandhofe, who died far too early in life, was a genius typesetter/designer/musician who was setting vast parts of the Gregorian body of music in new typesetting.

I just ran across these files for his Antiphonary: 1 2 3 4

  1. Sandhofe was an auto-didact, and he got lots of things right. He produced his own large volume of the night office in the old Roman rite – his Nocturnale Romanum, which I have. The diocese of Cologne would not give imprimatur if there were not at least some acknowledgement of the liturgical reform. So he added a one-page appendix to NR giving the "disposition" of psalms in the reformed office, and these files give music for that.

  2. This looks very similar to the Nocturnale Romanum I use frequently, perhaps by the same editor.

    Great resource, but disappointedly rife with transcription errors both in the musical notation and texts.
